Rear beretta 92 sights
This may be a dumb question to some, but r the rear sights on a beretta 92 adjustable? I've notice I shoot to the left a lot lol and I got to looking at the sights and they look like they r moved toward the left. So with that said I want to center them back up if possible.

The rear sight can be drifted right or left in the dovetail on the slide to adjust your windage if you are hitting to one side.

They make sight pushers for this to keep you from dinging up the slide and sight, but a delrin (plastic) punch can be used along with a hammer, or even a brass punch with some heavy tape to protect the finish will work in a pinch. Best to put the slide in a padded vice as well.

Awesome thanks doc. That's what I was thinking i could do. I didn't want to smack on it bc I didn't know if there was a dowel or something I couldn't see.

There isnt anything holding them on other than friction.

If a sight is already in a dovetail you can safely use a delrin punch brass punch or wood dowel todrift it.

If its all the way out or falls out at some point you need to use a sight drift tool to install it. If yours is really loose one teensy eensy bit of rocksett or blue locktite will keep it still. You dont want to do that unless its loose and keeps shifting.

I tried messing with it a little and I couldn't get it to move. I didn't really have the best set up to do it. I'm a machinist by trade some I'm going to take a couple tools home with me today and try again. Thanks for all the advice.
